This award recognizes high-growth entrepreneurs who demonstrate extraordinary success in innovation, financial performance and a personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
“We believe entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of our economy. It’s important to honor them and to recognize their impact, while encouraging others to follow in their footsteps,” said Debra von Storch, Ernst & Young’s Southwest Region Leader of Entrepreneur of the Year. “We are proud to recognize Stephen Mooney’s entrepreneurial spirit and strong leadership at Conifer Health Solutions.”
“Receiving Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year award is an incredible honor for me, especially given the pool of very accomplished nominees. I share this recognition with all of my Conifer Health colleagues,” said Conifer Health President and CEO Stephen Mooney. “Conifer Health’s significant growth reflects the results we deliver to hospitals and health systems that rely on our Revenue Cycle Management, Value-Based Care and Patient Communication and Engagement services to enhance operating efficiency and financial performance.”Conifer Health’s growth story began in 2008 when it was created out of the Patient Financial Services division at Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE:THC). Its client contact center began providing revenue cycle and patient communication services to non-Tenet hospitals and health systems. Today, Conifer Health operates in 43 states, serving more than 600 clients with more than 16 million patient interactions annually.
